New Shades

I love a great pair of shades and my new ones are perfect.  I got an email from Firmoo.

I have ordered glasses from them before and they wanted to offer me a free pair to review.  I couldn't have been more thrilled.  I love, love, love their glasses and I needed a pair of prescription sunglasses, so this was perfect.  

I looked through the many, many styles they have and decided on this gorgeous tortoise pair.

Deciding on the right pair is super easy, you just upload a picture of you face, then you can click on any frame you like and you can see how they look on you.  How fun is that.  I went for something super classic and chic.   They need a straight on shot and I can't seem to keep my head straight, so this won't work

  I am almost straight, this is going to work

When they arrived I was thrilled with how substantial and detailed the frames were. 

They even have beautiful silver tips on the ends of the frames.  Definitely attention to detail above and beyond the norm.  If you are ordering sunglasses you can also choose the tint on the lenses.  I chose light brown because I just like to difuse the sun a little, I really don't like dark glasses.  ( The tint is really darker than it looks in these pictures.)

Can you take a selfie without laughing?  (I guess I wear this blouse a lot)

They wanted a picture of me wearing the glasses, finally one where I'm not cracking up or looking cross eyed.

 The glasses were shipped in a really nice glass case and they even included a little eyeglass screwdriver.

These glasses would have cost $56 and I think that is a bargain and something I would have gladly paid.  

If you are looking for some new glasses, be sure to check them out, I am sure you will find the pair that is perfect for you.  I definitely found mine.

Thanks Firmoo - I love them.

I am joining the following parties:

Be sure to get all of your projects lined up for Inspire Me Tuesday.  Party goes live this afternoon at 3 PM CMT.  Can't wait to see you there.
